You might see this grow confused with its shut family member, the Scindapsus pictus (often described as silver satin pothos or simply satin pothos) since they remain in the same family. In fact, the common name of the Jade Satin Scindapsus is the Jade Satin Pothos, which makes it even more confusing because it isn't a pothos (and neither is the Scindapsus pictus!).

There's a key distinction, though—the Scindapsus Pictus "Jade Satin" has gorgeous, unique fallen leaves that have no pattern. This cultivar is grown free of silver markings on its fallen leaves. Rather, they are an abundant jade green with simply a tip of refined veining and a shine. Jade satin expands as a vining grow that can both climb up and hang. Although they are slow cultivators and take a bit much longer to origin, the persistence is well well worth it.

The variegated variation is incredibly beautiful as the yellow variegation will stun the eyes on the dark green fallen leaves

Scindapsus plants generally originate from Southeast Australia or europe where they expand generously. This consists of areas such as the Philippines and Bangladesh, all which are warm and damp. There are several cultivars of this grow that are sold and dispersed as houseplant
